Covenant 



We do now in the presence of Almighty God, and in the faith 
of the gospel, and by the help of Divine grace, unreservedly and 
unitedly give up ourselves to God the Father and His Son Jesus 
Christ, and to the Holy Ghost, to be for Him and no other; freely 
submitting ourselves to Him, to be at His disposal for His glory, 
taking Him as our true guide and only portion, promising by the 
help of Divine grace to watch against sin, temptation, and corrup- 
tion ; and to hold a continual warfare with the same, looking to 
Christ who is the author and finisher of our faith, and the only 
hope and surety of His people. 

Under His covenant of grace, we do now freely and joyfully 
give ourselves to one another by the will of God, freely cove- 
nanting and engaging to and with each other, to bear one another's 
burdens in the gospel and so fulfill the law of Christ unto obedi- 
ence, promising to watch over one another in love and to hold 
communion together in the ordinances of the gospel, submitting 
ourselves in this, which we trust a part of His mystical body, 
according as we shall be directed by His spirit in His word; and 
by the help of divine Grace to still pray for more light from the 
Lord believing that He will further and more gloriously open to 
us His word and the mysteries of His kingdom, and to our Lord 
Jesus Christ, our only Savior, to whom be glory forever and 
forever. Amen.

Articles of faith 



The following Articles of Faith were read and adopted without 
a dissenting voice : 

Article 1. — Of God and the Holy Family. — AVe believe in one 
only true and living God, who rules all things after the counsel of 
His own will; and that lie who created all things is infinite in 
power, wisdom, knowledge and goodness; eternal, immortal, in- 
visible and unchangeable ; and that this God has revealed Himself 
in His word, under the character of Father, Son and Holy Ghost, 
and that these three are one ; and that there are three that bear 
witness in earth : The water, the spirit and the blood, and that 
these agree in one. 

Article 2. — Of the Eoly Scriptures. — We believe that the Holy 
Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the written word of 
Cod. And are a sufficient rules of faith and practice; that they 
are given by inspiration of God, and are profitable for doctrine, 
for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness; 
and that they contain all things necessary to be known for the 
salvation of men. 

Article 3. — Of the Atonement. — We believe that Christ died and 
made a complete atonement for all who ever did, does now or 
ever will believe on His name ; and that all who are finally saved 
were given to Christ in Covenant of the Father before the world 
was, that they should show forth his praise. 

Article 4. — Of Foreknowledge, Election and Predestination.— We 

believe that (all) whom God did foreknow He did also predestinate 
to be conformed to the image of His Son, that God elected, accord- 
ing to His foreknowledge through sanctification of the spirit, unto 
obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ, to an in- 
heritance in corruptible and undefied, and that fadeth not away, 
reserved in heaven for all saints, and that none come to Christ, 
only those whom He loved with an everlasting love, and in due 
time calls to everlasting glory.

never finally fall away.

mersion.

general judgement.

eternal, and the joys of the righteous everlasting.

OBITUARY OF ELDER S. H. REID 



The Upper Mayo Association in session May 19, 1951, ap- 
pointed Elder J. A. Fagg and Deacon W. L. Johnson to write 
this article to be printed in the Association's Minutes. 

Elder S. H. Reid was born August 20, 1866, the son of Henry 
N. and Mahaley Leamore Reid. He died May 2, 1951, at the age 
of eighty-four years, seven months and eighteen days. 

He was united in marriage to Miss Nannie lane Marshall, 
December 20, 1893, who survives together with five daughters, 
four sons, seventeen grand-children and a host of relatives and 
friends to mourn his passing. 

He joined Clear Springs Primitive Baptist Church on June 8, 
1912, and was baptized by Elder J. A. Fagg. He was granted 
liberty to speak in public on October 12, 1912. 

He was a charter member of Walnut Cove Primitive Bapt-st 
Church. He organized Boyles Chapel Church and served as its 
pastor twenty-four years. He served No Creek Church for thirty 
years. He served Brush Creek Church, Sandy Creek Church, 
"Stuart Creek Church, Flat Shoals Church and Holly Springs 
Church for several years. 

He was a good pastor and loved the doctrine of Salvation by 
Grace 

His funeral was conducted by Elders J. A. Fagg, F. R. Moore, 
J. F. Manuel, A. B. Cashion and Gray Fulk and he was buried 
at Salem Chapel Church graveyard. There were sixteen preachers 
present and one of the largest crowds ever to attend a funeral 
in this part of the country. 

In his latter days he suffered much, but as Job, he murmured 
not. As the potter said, "His most valuable piece of ware had 
passed more often through the furnace". Usually the most tried 
Christians are the most Christ-like. The poet said, "There is a 
great want about all Christians who have not suffered. Some 
flowers must be broken or bruised before they emit fragrance. 
All the wounds of Christ send out fragrance, all the sorrows of 
Christians do the same. Commend me to a bruised brother — a 
broken reed — one like the Son of Man. The man of sorrows is 
never far from him". 

He was loved and highly respected by all who knew him. 

The widow has lost a good husband ; the children a good 
father; and Walnut Cove Primitive Baptist Church has lost an 
able preacher. 

Let us say to Sister Reid and the children : don't weep for 
him, we feel that he is now resting from his labors and his good 
name and works will follow after him. 

Asleep, blessed sleep, where the righteous never wake to weep. 
But some day the Dear Lord will call for his sleeping body to rise 
in the dear Saviour's likeness. 

May the Lord bless you, Sister Reid, and the dear children, 
to meet him over there where there will be no death or no more 
parting. In love, 

ELDER J. A. FAGG 
DEACON W. L. JOHNSON.

Tribute of Respect 
ELDER SAMUEL F. DENNY 



God in his infinite wisdom has called to His eternal home 
our dear brother and Elder, Samuel F. Denny. We, the church 
at Axton, bow in humble submission, believing his death a transi- 
tion from earth to heaven. 

He was born July 25, 1881, and departed this life February 
11, 1951. Making his stay on earth sixty-nine years, seven months 
and a few days. 

He was married to Miss Nannie Lou Matthews, whom, with 
nine children, five girls and four boys, survive. 

He joined the church at Axton August 19, 1933, bv confession 
of faith and was ordained to the ministry at this time, being 
appointed as joint pastor with Elder J. P. Via, serving the church 
in a faithful manner until his death. The last twelve years as 
joint pastor with Elder Carl T. Mabc. 

He was humble and meek, never revealing a jealous spirit, 
contending for the doctrine of salvation by grace, a revealed 
religion, which endeared him to our church. 

May God bless his family and Axton Church and prepare us 
to meet him in a better world. 

Done by order of the Church at Axton. 

ELDER CARL T. MABE, Moderator 
MARY H. DAVIS, Assistant Clerk.

Covenant 



We do now in the presence of Almighty God, and in the faith 
of the gospel, and by the help of Divine grace, unreservedly and 
unitedly give up ourselves to God the Father and His Son Jesus 
Christ, and to the Holy Ghost, to be for Him and no other; freely 
submitting ourselves to Him, to be at His disposal for His glory, 
taking Him as our true guide and only portion, promising by the 
help of Divine grace to watch against sin, temptation, and corrup- 
tion; and to hold a continual warfare with the same, looking to 
Christ who is the author and finisher of our faith, and the only 
hope and surety of His people. 

Under His covenant of grace, we do now freely and joyfully 
give ourselves to one another by the will of God, freely cove- 
nanting and engaging to and with each other, to bear one another's 
burdens in the gospel and so fulfill the law of Christ unto obedi- 
ence, promising to watch over one another in love and to hold 
communion together in the ordinances of the gospel, submitting 
ourselves in this, which we trust a part of His mystical body, 
according as we shall be directed by His spirit in His word; and 
by the help of divine Grace to still pray for more light from the 
Lord believing that He will further and more gloriously open to 
us His word and the mysteries of His kingdom, and to our Lord 
Jesus Christ, our only Savior, to whom be glory forever and 
forever. Amen.

Articles of faith 



The following Articles of Faith were read and adopted without 
a dissenting voice: 

Article 1. — Of God and the Holy Family. — We believe in one 
only true and living God, who rules all things after the counsel of 
His own will; and that He who created all things is infinite in 
power, wisdom, knowledge and goodness; eternal, immortal, in- 
visible and unchangeable; and that this God has revealed Himself 
in His word, under the character of Father, Son and Holy Ghost, 
and that these three are one; and that there are three that bear 
witness in earth : The water, the spirit and the blood, and that 
these agree in one. 

Article 2. — Of the Holy Scriptures. — We believe that the Holy 
Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the written word of 
God. And are a sufficient rules of faith and practice; that they 
are given by inspiration of God, and are profitable for doctrine, 
for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness; 
and that they contain all things necessary to be known for the 
salvation of men. 

Article 3. — Of the Atonement. — We believe that Christ died and 
made a complete atonement for all who ever did, does now or 
ever will believe on His name; and that all who are finally saved 
were given to Christ in Covenant of the Father before the world 
was, that they should show forth his praise. 

Article 4. — Of Foreknowledge, Election and Predestination. — We 

believe that (all) whom God did foreknow He did also predestinate 
to be conformed to the image of His Son, that God elected, accord- 
ing to His foreknowledge through sanctification of the spirit, unto 
obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ, to an in- 
heritance in corruptible and undefied, and that fadeth not away, 
reserved in heaven for all saints, and that none come to Christ, 
only those whom He loved with an everlasting love, and in due 
time calls to everlasting glory. 

Article 5. — We believe in the doctrine of original sin. 

Article 6. — We believe in man's impotency to recover himself 
from the fallen state he is in by his own free will and ability. 

Article 7. — We believe that sinners are justified in the sight of 
God only by the imputed righteousness of Christ. 

Article 8. — We believe that God's elect will be called, converted, 
regenerated, and sanctified by the Holy Spirit. 

Article 9. — We believe the saints shall be preserved in grace and 
never finally fall away. 

Article 10.— We believe that baptism and the Lord's supper are 
ordinances of Jesus Christ, and that true believers are the only 



8 



proper subjects of these ordinances, and that baptism is by im- 
mersion. 

Article 11. — We believe in the resurrection of the dead and a 
general judgement. 

Article 12. — We believe that punishment of the wicked will be 
eternal, and the joys of the righteous everlasting. 

Article 13. — We believe that no Minister has the right to ad- 
minister the ordinances only to such as are regularly called and 
have come under the imposition of the hands of the presbytery. 

Article 14. — We believe in Predestination, as taught in the scrip- 
tures and preached by the Apostle Paul and condemn the doctrine 
of the absolute predestination of all things.

Covenant 



We do now in the presence of Almighty God, and in the faith 
of the gospel, and by the help of Divine grace, unreservedly and 
unitedly give up ourselves to God the Father and His Son Jesus 
Christ, and to the Holy Ghost, to be for Him and no other ; freely 
submitting ourselves to Him. to be at His disposal for His glory, 
taking Him as our true guide and only portion, promising by the 
help of Divine grace to watch against sin. temptation, and corrup- 
tion; and to hold a continual warfare with the same, looking to 
Christ who is the author and finisher of our faith, and the only 
hope and surety of His people. 

Under His covenant of grace, we do now freely and joyfully 
give ourselves to one another by the will of God. freely cove- 
nanting and engaging to and with each other, to bear one another's 
burdens in the gospel and so fulfill the law of Christ unto obedi- 
ence, promising to watch over one another in love and to hold 
communion together in the ordinances of the gospel, submitting 
ourselves in this, which we trust a part of His mystical body, 
according as we shall be directed by His spirit in His word; and 
by the help of divine Grace to still pray for more light from the 
Lord believing that He will further and more gloriously open to 
us His word and the mysteries of His kingdom, and to our Lord 
Jesus Christ, our only Savior, to whom be glory forever and 
forever. Amen.

A rticles of Faith 



The following Articles of Faith were read and adopted without 
a dissenting voice : 

Article 1. — Of God and the Holy Family. — We believe in one 
only true and living God, who rules all things after the counsel of 
His own will; and that He who created all things is infinite in 
power, wisdom, knowledge and goodness; eternal, immortal, in- 
visible and unchangeable ; and that this God has revealed Himself 
in His word, under the character of Father, Son and Holy Ghost, 
and that these three are one ; and that there are three that bear 
witness in earth: The water, the spirit and the blood, and that 
these agree in one. 

Article 2. — Of the Holy Scriptures. — We believe that the Holy 
Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the written word of 
God. And are a sufficient rules of faith and practice; that they 
are given by inspiration of God, and are profitable for doctrine, 
for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness; 
and that they contain all things necessary to be known for the 
salvation of men. 

Article 3. — Of the Atonement. — We believe that Christ died and 
made a complete atonement for all who ever did, does now or 
ever will believe on His name ; and that all who are finally saved 
were given to Christ in Covenant of the Father before the world 
was, that they should show forth his praise. 

Article 4. — Of Foreknowledge, Election and Predestination. — We 

believe that (all) whom God did foreknow He did also predestinate 
to be conformed to the image of His Son, that God elected, accord- 
ing to His foreknowledge through sanctification of the spirit, unto 
obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ, to an in- 
heritance in corruptible and undefied, and that fadeth not away, 
reserved in heaven for all saints, and that none come to Christ, 
only those whom He loved with an everlasting love, and in due 
time calls to everlasting glory. 

Article 5. — We believe in the doctrine of original sin. 

Article 6. — We believe in man's impotency to recover himself 
from the fallen state he is in by his own free will and ability. 

Article 7. — We believe that sinners are justified in the sight of 
God only by the imputed righteousness of Christ. 

Article 8. — We believe that God's elect will be called, converted, 
regenerated, and sanctified by the Holy Spirit. 

Article 9. — We believe the saints shall be preserved in grace and 
never finally fall away. 

Article 10. — We believe that baptism and the Lord's supper are 



11 



ordinances of Jesus Christ, and that true believers are the only- 
proper subjects of these ordinances, and that baptism is by im- 
mersion. 

Article 11. — We believe in the resurrection of the dead and a 
general judgement. 

Article 12. — We believe that punishment of the wicked will be 
eternal, and the joys of the righteous everlasting. 

Article 13. — We believe that no Minister has the right to ad- 
minister the ordinances only to such as are regularly called and 
have come under the imposition of the hands of the presbytery.

tures and preached by the Apostle Paul and condemn the doctrine
